Immunofluorescent analysis of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) in E18 Sparague Dawley primary cortical neuronal cells containing astrocytes. The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde for 15 mins, permeabilized with 0.25% Triton X-100 in PBS for 10 mins, and blocked with 3% BSA in PBS for 30 mins at RT. Cells were stained with a GFAP mouse monoclonal antibody (Product # MA5-12023) at a dilution of 1:200 in 3% BSA in PBS for 1 hr at RT, and then incubated with Invitrogen™ AlexaFluor™ 488 Plus goat anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody (Product # A32723) at a dilution of 1:1000 for 1 hr at RT. Nuclei were stained with Hoechst 33342 (product # H3570). The image contains overlay of GFAP (green) and nuclei (blue). Images were taken on a Zeiss LSM 710 confocal microscope at 40X magnification.

MA5-12023 targets Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein in IF, IHC (P), and WB applications and shows reactivity with Chicken, Human, Porcine, and Rat samples.
The MA5-12023 immunogen is glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein.
MA5-12023 was successfully used to detect astrocytes in E18 Sparague Dawley primary cortical cells.
Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) is specific to astrocytes (i.e., glial cells) and ependymal cells of the central nervous system. Antibody to GFAP is useful in differentiating primary gliomas from metastatic lesions in the brain and for documenting astrocytic differentiation in tumors outside the CNS. Ab-6 stains astrocytes, glial cells, ependymal cells and their corresponding tumors. Many types of neural tumors such as neuroblastomas, Schwannomas, as well as extra-CNS tumors are not labeled.
